We dropped down though Tixall Lock and on along for diesel at the Anglo Welsh base at Great Haywood. A very friendly place who will do ‘Poste Resante’ for me now that the Post Offices are stopping their service. Leaving under the junction bridge we turned right onto the T&M canal to find a space just a few boat lengths down. I had a surprise when I went to buy things at the Farm Shop, as next to it there was a posh new Canalside Cafe which opened in July. Next day we went there for our lunch and very lovely it was too, then I picked up my post. I found that there was a very efficient little pharmacy where I was able to pick up my prescription items, brilliant service all round!
